About Us
The Friendship Circle extends a helping hand to families who have children with special needs and involves them in a full range of social and Judaic experiences. The Circle's unique formula introduces teenage volunteers to the children and their families, and through the shared experiences, all are enriched.
» Everyone Gains!
• The child with special needs looks forward to a weekly visit and the opportunity to play with and learn from their older friends.
• The teenage volunteer learns the value of giving, and cherishes the experience of making a difference in a child's life and bringing a smile to his or her face.
• The child's family gets a needed respite and the pleasure of seeing their child become a part of the community circle
